I don't know why it took me three decades to make flan. Growing up, it was my absolute favorite dessert. Maybe I always equated its deliciousness with complicatedness? (Maybe I just made up some words?)
Anyway! I was craving flan the other night and, upon pulling up this recipe, realized that it: 1) requires very little culinary skill, 2) requires tools that I do indeed own, and 3) requires pantry items so basic that they could actually be found in my kitchen.
So I made me some flan (yes, just for me -- Jon is not a fan of the flan). It turned out so awesome. I quartered the recipe and ended up with three custard cups full of goodness.
I devoured them all that very night. All by myself.
